LOVER MAN (OH WHERE CAN YOU BE?)
Ella Fitzgerald


I don't know why
But I'm feeling so sad
I long to try
Something I never had

Never had no kissing
Ooh, what I've been missing
Lover man oh, where can you be

The night is cold
And I'm so all alone
I'll give my soul
Just to call you my own

Hugging and kissing
Ooh, what we've been missing
Lover man oh, where can you be

I've heard it say
That the thrill of romance
Can be like a heavenly dream

I go to bed
With the prayer
That you'll make love to me
Strange as it seems

Someday we'll meet
And you'll dry all my tears
Then whisper sweet little things in my ears

Hugging and kissing
Ooh, what we've been missing
Lover man oh, where can you be

I've heard it say
That the thrill of romance
Can be like a heavenly dream

I go to bed
With the prayer
That you'll make love to me
Strange as it seems

Someday we'll meet
And you'll dry all my tears
Then whisper sweet little things in my ears

Hugging and kissing
Ooh, what we've been missing
Lover man oh, where can you be
